I think some people feel that only overweight people are eating wrong. I have never had a problem with my weight, but I still knew that I was eating the wrong foods. I wanted to eat healthier because I knew that while I may not see or feel the damage now, I would definitely feel it down the road. I decided to be proactive rather than reactive, and I am grateful that I did because I was not aware just unhealthy I was actually being until I started reading nutritionstrategy.com articles on a regular basis.
There was one cartoon on this site that really hit me hard. It was a joke about math and a boy eating x amount of candy bars. Rather than giving the answer to the math problem, the punch line was about the boy having diabetes because of all the candy he had eaten. That hit me particularly hard because diabetes does run in my family, and I did have a major candy problem. Family used to joke that I can eat anything I want without getting fat or sick, but the joke was actually on me.
I knew that I was running the danger of getting diabetes myself. In addition, I was not making the best choices for my heart by eating junk food and fast food as often as I did. I learned a lot about nutrition on this site, and I am eating much better now. Not only am I eating better foods, but I am finding that I am not hungry all the time anymore. That is what happens when you put the right kind of fuel into your body. I am eating better, I am looking better, and I am also feeling better. That is pretty funny, considering I thought I was pretty healthy not that long ago!
